Industrial music made such a huge impact on me when I first discovered it. Depeche Mode definitely cracked opened those doors, but it was seeing the video for Sensoria on Night Flight that really kickstarted it. You can hear its spreading influence in the big drums of late 80s dance tracks, and to me they always paired together well. So here I cast the net wide while digging deep to keep those (i.e. me) seeking those obscure/hidden gems happy. Please enjoy Total M’s homage to the dark, edgy, glittery, and grandiose sounds of 80s ‘Industrial Dance’.

More late 80s/early 90s Chicago, Detroit, New York, UK house.  I think this was the first mixtape put out by Champion Sound in San Diego (they released all the ones up to the ‘Blessings’ mix).  It’s yet another trip down house music memory lane, an era I frequently revisit.  Good times!
